Remember the competition for ideas to use up Connor's empty formula cans?
Well, I loved all the comments. Clearly you guys are MUCH more creative than I could ever be :)
There were truly some great suggestions - if you haven't read them, go have a read and make some notes for your spare cans.
My favourite ideas were from Danel (commenter 1) who gave me not one, but four great ideas:
I use mine as follows:
- store small toys in them.
- cut an opening in the lid and let my baby put babyfood lids through the opening.
- put anything noisy in them so that baby can shake it - loves the noise
- use an empty one as a drum - i taught my baby to hit it with his hands or a spoon to make some noise!
I may have liked them so much because they're baby uses for empty baby cans :) I get a kick out of things like that.
So Danel, look out for an email from me soon :)
I also loved the suggestions to use them for Christmas goodies so I've decided to also use some of the cans for my famous oatmeal drop cookies to give to some of my friends for Christmas. Everybody LOVES these - just try them.
These are the easiest things in the world to make and you absolutely can't go wrong with them. I promise.
I did my first batch today and 1 1/2 cans are already used :)
Thanks, everybody, for playing along.
P.S. I still haven't managed to fix this scheduling problem (yes, I've logged it on the support forums) so I'm moving to Wordpress. I think I've been very patient the last 6 months!
P.P.S. I go back to work in 2 weeks time!
